Parking Spots of Pain

It was a beautiful morning for a VQ and I arrived early. Instead of using a white board, I decided I would write out the exercises in sidewalk chalk. It was only after I finished that I realized someone at Five Stones might have a problem with this. Hopefully no one cared.

Diccs given (Disclaimer, Cell Phone, CPR, Safety)

Warm up:  

  • Mosey to top of hill and back to side of Mt. Chiseled
  • SSH x 15
  • Imperial walkers x 10
  • Moroccan night clubs x 15
  • Jimmy Dugans
  • Calf stretch
  • Imperial butt kickers x 10

The Thang:

  • 7’s with burpees in parking spaces at side out mount chiseled followed by paused squats in back parking lot (6+1, 5+2, etc)
  • Mosey over to opposite end of parking lot, partner up for…


  1. Timer- sledge hammer tire/ farmer’s carry to and from island. Everyone switches with timers then rotates

  • side planks with leg raise x 10
  • Jwow’s x 10
  • Hand release push ups with T (audible by Loafer)
  • LBC’s


There’s been a lot of 90’s rock/ classic rock lately and not enough Wu-Tang, so I decided to go with a 90’s hip hop playlist today (will send it to Turnbuckle later). Everyone worked hard from the get go and there was minimal complaining about the burpees.  Once we got into a rhythm with the stations things were smooth yet brutal. RDL’s with the 40 pounders in particular were killers.  Shout out to Chainsaw for showing good form on every exercise like a boss, and also for not punching me in the face after DiCCS.  Twinkle toes was a trooper while working around a cranky shoulder. He seemed to enjoy the coupon hip thrusts as a break for his upper body… perhaps a little too much.  Thanks to Ex lax and Loafer for the guidance, and coming out early to help with gear. I’m glad I got out of my comfort zone a bit by Qing my first workout.  A few hiccups here and there — and next time I should think of a prayer ahead of time — but overall a good experience. I closed with a quote which Schneider asked me to post, so here it is:

“For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin — real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.” – Alfred D. Souza

Note: for the sake of completeness, Falcon and Butter Man were in the Pax but for some reason I wasn’t able to add them
